Budget 10-15K Do you think this Realme phone is worth buying?

I am looking to buy a smartphone under 11k and I have not seen a lot of options that are not Realme. And although I have used a Realme smartphone before I just wanted to take some more opinions and this seems like the best place to do that. So the smartphone that I am now considering is the newly released Realme C25. It's not for me but for my father and he wanted a sturdy phone with not too much fuss about cameras or other things. His only demand is that the battery should be good and the phone should last for a considerable number of hours. I looked up the specs and I say that this phone has a 6000mAh battery with 18W quick charging so that somehow impressed me because I haven't found many 10k phones with 6000mAh battery. This is actually the major reason why I am considering buying this smartphone for my father. Other than that I haven't found anything off putting about the specs as such. The cameras could have been better but since my dad doesn't specifically click that many pictures it should be fine. It has a mediatek processor which seems decent enough for regular using and also some gaming, which will be for me. So, I don’t know if I should go ahead with this one when it is available in the market later this month or should I wait. There isn’t an urgent requirement as such but I quite like the specs of this one as it matches our requirements.

have a look at redmi note 10. Its 12k I think for 4gb 64gb model.

But it comes with snapdragon 678 plus 5000mah battery with 33w charger in box plus AMOLED screen. I know about these specs because I too was searching for a phone under 15k for my neighbor aunt

But once you get the phone, you have to do few steps to remove ads in miui but that takes 5~10 mins and its a one time thing

Have been using realme x3 for a year now and my wife has been on x2 pro. She used to be an iphone user before this.

No major issues, regular security updates. I had probably done some de bloating through adb when I bought the phone.. Took 15 mins but haven't faced any issues since then with ads etc

I put nova launcher on any android device so can't comment on the stock home launcher app

Ofcourse i wish it was vanilla android but fir your dad i expect the os to cause no issues

Haven't faced any issues with build etc too yet

If your budget is strictly under 15k, you can go for a number of Moto smartphones that are so good. Realme is good but I do not recommend budget Realme smartphones because the screen and the display of these smartphones starts fading very soon. If at all you have to buy a Realme smartphone, go for Realme X7 or something like Oppo F19 Pro+ with Dimensity 800U chipset and super AMOLED display is also quite good. However, budget Xiaomi and Realme smartphones are easily available in the budget segment because they have low build quality.
Either you keep these smartphones inside a flip cover or do not buy them at all. Go for good Motorola and LG smartphones. LG is wrapping up its smartphone business so the good LG smartphones would become cheaper. No doubt, you can cash this opportunity and get your desired smartphones.

Thank you so much for your suggestions. I'm just not too keen on Motorola phones because I have used one before and that really disappointed me. My budget was 15k but seeing as there are not many reliable smartphones that would last at least two three years if not more, I think I will have to look at other options too. The LG seems good though. LG phones some of my friends have used and they all have given really nice reviews as well. I think I may look at some newer LG phones. And as for the Realme phones I agree with you the Realme X7 is a pretty good one going by the specs. Also, I don't mind it being a 5G phone with a Mediatek 5G processor. Oppo phones are more camera centric I believe and my father doesn't really have a requirement for that at the moment and I already have my own phone. What LG phones would you recommend I go for considering my budget? I am okay with relaxing it a bit if the smartphone is good enough because ultimately I want a sound device that can function properly with minimal lags and freezes. I have seen a lot of good reviews for the LG dual screen phones and although they seem great that’s not what I’m looking for at the moment. So if you could suggest some other ones it’s appreciated. The Realme X7 till now seems like a decent choice. I just want something sturdy with a good software
